PIERRE, S.D. -- An 18-year-old Fort Yates, N.D., man will serve almost three years in prison for kicking and then stomping on the head of another man during a fight outside a home in McLaughlin, S.D., on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation last Jan.

PIERRE, S.D. -- An 18-year-old Fort Yates, N.D., man will serve almost three years in prison for kicking and then stomping on the head of another man during a fight outside a home in McLaughlin, S.D., on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation last Jan. 1.

Victor Twinn had pleaded guilty to the charge of assault resulting in serious bodily injury this past summer. He was sentenced by U.S. District Court judge Charles Kornmann last week.

The victim in the fight and beating was found unconscious in front of the home, bleeding from his ears and head. He was transported to St. Alexius ICU in Bismarck with severe swelling to his head and face from the assault and was hospitalized for an unspecified period of time.

Witnesses said they had tried to break up the fight and pulled Twinn away but Twinn said he was “extremely upset” and went back and stomped on the victim’s head multiple times.
